Continuing Ragged Jack

Continuing Ragged Jack Road drive.  The first photo we took the top or right road kept going along thinking we would come onto a highway, but, alas - the bridge was down and it appeared that it had been for sometimes, should have been a sign to say 'no through road', oh well we did enjoy the drive in the bush and plantation.  4th photo is a scene of a tree plantation then some kind of plant that blends into the colours of the grasses and then we came into Upper Blessington a farming area then home.

    1. Yes it's unusual and one I've not seen often, that plant.

  2. Los paisajes se suceden unos tras otros, a cual más bello.

    Debería haber puesto una indicación, de que el paso del puente estaba cortado y os hubiera ahorado kms de distancia.

    1. A sign saying road was closed would have been a good idea, however, we saw scenery we would not have seen.

    1. It is rather like that Anita. We do have a place in Tasmania called Paradise!

  4. I wonder what kind of flowers that plant has before they went to seed. It rather resembles a Verbascum - Mullien plant.

    1. Have no idea Rosemary but it's growing wild on the side of the road, and you could be right, looked it up and the leaves as similar so probably in the same family.

  5. Sometimes it's a pleasure when things don't turn out exactly as you figured they would.

    1. It's favourable scenery for sure and I've no idea who Jack was but the name goes back to the 1800's.

  8. It does one good mentally and spiritually to be on the road, surrounded by Nature and protected from above by the vast blue, endless sky.

    1. Thanks Teresa.
      The answer to your question is - No - I can see your photos and post if I click on your name when you comment on my post, but I can't see you at all on my list at the moment. I'm also having trouble with my list, hoping it will come right soon...

  11. Very beautiful images, when you visit your blog, you feel like visiting that great country, to visit it and enjoy those beautiful landscapes, those immense campors.
    Happy week.
    Best regards.

    1. Thanks Denise. Interesting plant and I presume they have flowers.

  14. That's the kind of ride I love! As you say, a "road closed" sign would have kept you from the discoveries. The mystery plant reminds me of one we've seen on the dry side-- but it does appear to be different. ALso--- my blog is still at the very end of your list, but at least it goes to the blog. Most still show the blog in nothing but code.

  16. That looks a nice country drive. Bad luck about the bridge and no sign to alert you. WE had that happen here in QLD once when we were looking for a waterfall. when we arrived at the carpark it said path closed due to storm damage. Why couldn't there have been a sign way before we went into the NP.

    1. Scratch my head sometimes because there are no signs, often it's a long way to drive and back again.
